9789004166639: Cartography in Antiquity and the Middle Ages: Fresh Perspectives, New Methods (Technology and Change in History)

In scope, this book matches The History of Cartography, vol. 1 (1987) edited by Brian Harley and David Woodward. Now, twenty years after the appearance of that seminal work, classicists and medievalists from Europe and North America highlight, distill and reflect on the remarkably productive progress made since in many different areas of the study of maps. The interaction between experts on antiquity and on the Middle Ages evident in the thirteen contributions offers a guide to the future and illustrates close relationships in the evolving practice of cartography over the first millennium and a half of the Christian era. Contributors are Emily Albu, Raymond Clemens, Lucy Donkin, Evelyn Edson, Tom Elliott, Patrick Gauthier Dalche, Benjamin Kedar, Maja Kominko, Natalia Lozovsky, Yossef Rapoport, Emilie Savage-Smith, Camille Serchuk, Richard Talbert, and Jennifer Trimble.

'a vade mecum for the periods under review. Highly recommended. Graduate students, faculty.' G.J. Martin, Choice, 47,1, September 2009. 'Ce tres interessant volume, echo du 35e Atelier medieval qui reunit a Vancouver, en octobre 2005, une quinzaine de specialistes, est dedie a la memoire des pionniers que furent, pour l'histoire de la cartographie, John Brian Harley et David Woodward, disparus respectivement en 1991 et en 2004. [...] Une abondante bibliographie, un index, quatorze planches en couleurs (sans compter les nombreuses illustrations a l'interieur de l'ouvrage) font de ce recueil d'articles un instrument de travail indispensable pour les medievistes interesses par l'histoire des mentalites et un excellent complement au volume I de l'History of Cartography qui date de 1987, une epoque ou la numerisation n'avait pas encore revele toutes ses possibilites.' Germaine Aujac (Universite de Toulouse) in: Anabases 12 (2010), p. 263-265.
